By Mike_Smith
Thank You for all the clicks and comments on my previous shots. Today i have a Jay who has his eye on me lol,

Found across most of the UK, except northern Scotland. Lives in both deciduous and coniferous woodland, parks and mature gardens. Likes oak trees in autumn when there are plenty of acorns. Often seen flying across a woodland glade giving its screeching call, it becomes more obvious in autumn when it may fly some distance in the open in search of acorns.

I am not normally a fan of 'head on' shots Mike. It always seems to distort facial features. However I almost changed my ming when I saw this lovely shot. Great capture.
